Boston Unveils Statue of Edgar Allan Poe

The city of Boston has uncovered its most recent historic statue. Honoring the late and great poet, Edgar Allan Poe, the city created a life size version of him, with a raven flying from a suitcase. The eerie and telling statue devoted to the Boston native is located at the corner of Boylston and Charles Street, directly across from the Boston Common. Poe was born there, on Charles street on January 19, 1809. The Edgar Allan Poe Foundation of Boston raised the funds to erect the statue, along with help from the City of Boston Arts Commission.
